Raiders QB Matt Schaub has rejoined the team.

Schaub missed the last two weeks due to a family matter. With Derek Carr dealing with multiple injuries, there's a chance he could start in Week 6 against the Chargers.
Oct 1 - 6:03 PM

Derek Carr (ankle, knee) said he expects to play after the Raiders' Week 5 bye.

Carr suffered a sprain MCL and high-ankle sprain against the Dolphins, so it would take an impressive recovery from him to return in two weeks. The Raiders would be forced to start Matt Schaub or Matt McGloin if Carr misses time.
Oct 1 - 5:54 PM

Bernard Pierce (thigh) is practicing in full for Week 5.

Pierce also practiced in full last week, but was held out of Sunday's blowout win as a precautionary measure. He's currently behind Justin Forsett and Lorenzo Taliaferro for carries, and isn't a must-hold in fantasy leagues.
Oct 1 - 5:38 PM

Michael Crabtree (foot) is practicing Wednesday.

Owners got a scare when Crabtree exited last Sunday's win over the Eagles early with an issue to his previously troublesome left foot. He eventually returned to catch five passes for 43 yards. Crabtree will be a WR2/3 vs. the Chiefs.
Oct 1 - 5:32 PM

Chiefs RB/WR De'Anthony Thomas (hamstring) is practicing in full for Week 5.

Thomas should finally make his debut after missing the first month of the season. He'll be the Chiefs' primary return man.
Oct 1 - 5:18 PM

Jamaal Charles (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

The Chiefs are just managing his reps after giving him 21 touches in Monday night's win. Charles hasn't had any setbacks, and will be fine for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
Oct 1 - 5:16 PM

Jordan Cameron (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 5.

Cameron is as healthy as he's been this season coming off the Browns' bye. He's a TE1 against a Titans defense that's allowing the tenth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends.
Oct 1 - 4:53 PM

NFL suspended Panthers DE Frank Alexander 10 games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

Alexander just returned Monday from a four-game suspension for violating the same policy. He's now out for the next 10 games, and can't return until Week 16. What a boneheaded mistake. Carolina will continue to move forward with Charles Johnson, Kony Ealy, Mario Addison, and Wes Horton as its four-man rotation at end. Alexander's rookie deal ends following the 2015 season.
